How to do a Trump comb over

We are proud to present our in-depth guide on how to do the truly terrific Trump comb over.



  1. Sweep thinning front section to side to provide a band of cover above forehead
  2. The most important part: take the longest back section and propel it forward so that the combover lies at a 90 degree angle with the under layer and gives the illusion of thickness
  3. Take a third section of hair from the top, roughly in line with the left ear and sweet backwards at an angle to deal with the peripheral thinning area on top
  4. Comb hair directly above ear backwards, otherwise it will trail by the face detracting from the rest of the coiffure.


We would have loved to patent this approach, but unfortunately that have already been done:




US Patent US 4022227 A describes:

A method of styling hair to cover partial baldness using only the hair on a person’s head. The hair styling requires dividing a person’s hair into three sections and carefully folding one section over another.

So we guess unfortunately this is prior art.
